Showing 1-10 of 19
4 stars despite the Main Board required replacement
18 February 2013
Summary: Pros: Great picture in either dark or bright environments. The wireless connection to the home network connected easily and handles most HD files w/o problems. Great for watching files saved onto the network PC. Occasionally loses connection and requires a PC reboot. Good sound for a TV.
Summary: I have had this TV for 2 months now and the main feature that is critical to me is the picture quality, which I think is tremendous. Not only is it clear and vibrant, but the viewing angles are excellent! The issues I have are not critical, but keep the TV from a 5 star rating IMO. 1.
Summary: I truely find the Samsumg plasma a great TV. The picture quality is exceptional and I havre no quibble with its performance. I do, however, have a major complaint about the loss of the use of "clossed captioning" once I hooked up the DVR via HDMI.
Summary: After doing hours upon hours of research, I finally decided on the Samsung PN59D8000 and I am very pleased with it. The picture quality and color accuracy are both excellent. I watch a lot of sports in HD and so far, this TV has not let me down.
Near perfect wall mounted TV (over fireplace too!)

Summary: Pros: Picture quality, viewing angles, ultra thin profile and frame, customer service, just-right screen size for fireplace wall, fast delivery, price, easy on-screen menus. Cons: The first unit we got was defective but don't let this scare you; Amazon made it incredibly easy to get a replacement...
Summary: Amazing TV. It has a boatload of features. All apps that it comes with are very cool. The picture quality is awesome too, especially the digital channels. Haven't tested the 3d feature yet. The TV should ideally ship with the glasses. I got a 3d blu-ray player even.
Summary: This TV is great, the colors, picture and price, but I have notice some fluctuating screen when watching movies on netflix. The 3D is good, but not eye popping. 2D picture in Blue Ray is the best TV. There are not that many 3d selections on netflix or blockbuster, so 3D is good enough.
Summary: I just got this TV for a week. So, this is my first impression of this TV. It is very easy to install and set it up. It worked with my HD DVR DirecTV box right away. Then, I have to program my DirecTV remote to control this TV using DirecTV on screen setup menu.
Great TV, picture is better than great but sound is at best adequate

Summary: The Samsung PN51D8000 51-inch 1080p 3D Ready Plasma HDTV is a great TV. The picture is perfect both in 3D and 2D. We have a bright room almost like a sun-room and the picture is still great. I give the Picture 9.5 out of 10.
Summary: After going through three of the Panasonic TC-P50GT30s, all of which had the "green blob" problem, flickering brightness and the loud buzzing issue, I decided I'd had enough and got the Samsung PN51D8000.
